You may not think about your HVAC ducts very often, but your ductwork is an extremely important part of your HVAC system. In fact, it’s the V in HVAC: It ventilates and carries the air throughout your building. That’s why ductwork design is so important, and it’s why you should partner with an HVAC company that will work with you to meet your building’s and your business’s needs. You should look for an HVAC fabrication partner with the following attributes:

An In-House Fabrication Shop

A company that fabricates sheet metal ducts in-house can perform quality control on your commercial HVAC duct design. They can also reduce labor costs, since they will not contract the sheet metal fabrication to a third-party, which some HVAC installation companies do. Working with a company that performs in-house fabrication also means they will have direct control over the HVAC ductwork design, so they can ensure the design complies with building codes and other necessary regulations.

HVAC Design & Engineering Services

Along with in-house fabrication, the company you partner with should be able to design the entire HVAC system. This will ensure the heating, air conditioning, and ventilation systems all work well together. A company with HVAC design and engineering will be able to calculate the air distribution loads your system needs. They will also understand the relationship between the ductwork and the central parts of the HVAC system (air filters, dampers, etc.). They can determine what system size your building needs, and which one will provide the best air quality and air flow for it.

HVAC Installation Services

This almost goes without saying, but you must partner with a company that can install your entire heating and cooling system, not just design and fabricate the ducts. A company that performs HVAC installation and duct fabrication will be able to put your new duct system in place once it has been designed and fabricated. This will shorten the overall supply chain, since one company will be able to design, fabricate, and install the ducts. That will reduce your costs in the long run. Also, since you’ll work with just one company, it will be easier for them to customize their solutions to fit your building’s and your business’s specific needs.
